    On Giving Tuesday, fund a washable pad program and empower generations of women! Since 2012, Giving Tuesday has served as a day for people to come together to support communities and to celebrate generosity around the globe.


    This Giving Tuesday, The Pad Project needs your help to support our 7 washable pad programs. These programs need funding to purchase raw materials to make the pads, to make and distribute Dignity Kits full of menstrual hygiene products, and to host menstrual hygiene management workshops.
